My name is..

One of my students this morning, during his self-introduction said, “my favorite subject is History”. I asked him why, and he said “sir, I just want to think of what could our present be if some things did not happen in the past”. I smiled and said, “young man, we cannot just sit around wondering why certain things happened in the past or wishing they did not occur.” Negative events in the past serve as a warning not to repeat the same mistakes in the present. For those who keep on finding more mistakes are even luckier they are given chances to make up or to learn from it. And only then can we be wiser for our lives.

Another school year opens and I hope this will be a productive learning year for all of us.
